Apple Stores in Europe Offering Free Coding Sessions for Code Week

by John_A

EU Code Week runs from October 6-21, and during the event Apple will offer more than 2,000 free coding sessions, with at least one free session every day in every Apple store in Europe. Like previous Today at Apple events, these sessions are open to all customers, and Apple says they are designed to help people of all ages and skill levels learn to code.

Sessions include “How To: Get Started with Coding,” “Teacher Tuesdays: App Design & Coding Basics,” and “Kids Hour: Sphero Maze Challenge.”

“Coding is a critical skill that gives people of all ages the chance to create and share their ideas with the world,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Apple has long believed coding is the language of the future, and we’ve created a range of tools to make it fun and accessible for everyone. We’re thrilled to offer thousands of sessions in Apple stores for EU Code Week, and can’t wait to share our love for coding with young people and educators across Europe.”

Additionally, schools and coding organizations across Europe will be able to offer their own Swift workshops through Apple’s Everyone Can Code curriculum and the new coding challenges created for EU Code Week. One Swift Playgrounds app challenge is the “Incredible Code Machine,” and is designed for entry-level coders.

In the press release announcing its participation in EU Code Week, Apple touted a few milestones in the Swift coding language and Today at Apple coding sessions. According to the company, over 75,000 attendees have taken part in more than 14,000 coding sessions at Apple stores in Europe over the past year. Apple also says that there are now 1.5 million jobs across Europe attributable to the company’s iOS app economy.

Interested users in Europe can find local coding sessions on the Code Week website and on Apple.com.
